A Weekend with Family…

We had a wonderful weekend spent with family.  My Aunt Debbie and cousins, Tannis and Isabella, were here visiting from the Carolinas.  Friday Tannis and I got to hang out at our home a little bit baking bread and visiting. 

Saturday, we went to my cousin, Kendra’s, home to grill and swim with everyone.  Sunday, was lunch at Grandma’s home just up the road from us.  There was lots of family fun all weekend long.

My cousin, Tannis, and I could talk forever about homeschooling, parenting, nutrition and health.  We just didn’t have enough time to discuss all the things we would have liked.  Luckily we have what is called the internet and cell phones to keep us in touch.

The weekend went way too fast just as we knew it would.  Now it’s back to our regularly scheduled program.

    Hee, hee! Sorry girls, it was the only one I could get of our not-so-camera-friendly family before mom told me (ever so politely) to “put that camera away.”

    Really meant to get one of us girls that evening. Still kicking myself!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
